Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:


  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.

If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

I can't get tape out of cam corder


Let me know the error message. Go down further on the error message check for numeric code. If you see ''02". I'm sorry you need a qualified personnel to do the job. if it shows "03" keep the cassette door open(5 sec or more and make sure to put power on it) and wait until it open.If it ejected, try with another tape, it could be your tape causes problem. Good luck

You can press play and pause, but then you can't press down rec. help.


Is the erasure prevention tab missing from a commercial or previously recorded cassette? It would leave a little (about 1/8" square) hole in the spine edge of the cassette shell. That tab is there to prevent accidental erasure by allowing a small sensor lever to drop in and mechanically disable the recording mechanism. Compare a commercial cassette with a brand new blank one. You can place a piece of adhesive tape on the casette to allow recording, but take care to NOT cover more than the first 1/8" of the opening if it is larger as the recorder also senses tape type by the length of the hole molded into the cassette.
Word to the wise - don't scrimp on the tape if the recording matters to you. Spend a bit extra for better tapes. Store the tapes 'played', avoid fast forwarding and rewinding unless you'll be playing them through to wrap the tape uniformly before storing it INSIDE its tape box. Read the other warnings that come with the media. No heat, moisture, dust, blah-blah.

I believe this unit employs an optical sensor to detect tape end.
Clean this off to. It looks like a transparent post positioned along the tape path. Reset the counter to zero and fast forward tape to end. Rewind, and try to play tape as normal
